- Under the guidance of founder Ellen Stewart, La Mama has played a seminal part in fostering Off-Off-Broadway theatre, nurturing and encouraging such important theatre artists as Tom O'Horgan, Lanford Wilson, Sam Shepard, Philip Glass, Joseph Chaiken, Andrei Serban and Liz Swados. The documentary features excerpts of some of the 18 plays which were revived at the theatre for its anniversary season. These distinguished works include Paul Foster's Hurrah for the Bridge and Leonard Melfi's Birdbath both directed by Tom O'Horgan; Jean Claude Van Italie's Motel directed by Michael Kahn; and Lanford Wilson's production of his own play Rimers of Eldritch. The interviews in the program include recollections by Ellen Stewart and La Mama alumni Paul Foster, Tom O'Horgan, Leonard Melfi, Lanford Wilson, Philip Glass, Joseph Chaiken, Harvey Fierstein and many others.
